Family, Vlogs

25 Fun Songs for Family Vacation Slideshows

Putting together funny pictures and candid videos is easy for me. But why is picking music for my family vacation video montages SO hard? I have read many articles online, all of which recommend the same 10 songs and almost none of which work for my crazy family. This year, I made two vlogs: One for our huge family vacation to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and the other for our Thanksgiving Trip home to Birch Run and Vanderbilt, Michigan. I prefer using a couple different genres to appeal to all different generations of our family. While most songs about family are slow, I have searched to find some upbeat tempos to match the crazy beat of our life.

Here are the songs I used in this year’s videos, and some I’m saving for next year:

1. Smokey Mountain Memories by Mel Street

2. Mountain Music by Alabama

3. That’s What It’s All About by Brooks and Dunn
